tv With All Due Respect Bloomberg August 15, 2016 5:00pm-6:01pm EDT
this is not a joke. this is real. this is such a bunch of malarkey. just the facts. nothing but the facts. that was joe friday, actually. mark: we literally have a great show tonight. donald j. trump starts the week with more questions. is very viability as a gop nominee. often what donald trump does when he faces questions about his candidacy. he gave a scripted speech. he laid out his plan for combating terrorism. trump called for a quick and complete eradication of isis, finding common ground with russia, and background screenings are in doubt. while continuously framing hillary clinton as weak on terrorism, trump proposed a
political and ideological test for immigrants coming into america. here are some of the highlights. >> hillary clinton lacks the judgment, as said by bernie sanders, stability, and temperament and the moral character to lead our nation. [applause] >> she also lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on isis. we should only admit into this country those who share our values and respect our people. the time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today. i call it extreme vetting. in addition to screening out all tobers of the sympathizers terrorist groups, we must also screen out any hostile attitudes towards our country and its principles or who believes that sharia law should supplant
american law. [applause] >> those who do not believe in our constitution or who supported bigotry and hatred will not be admitted for immigration into our country. to put these new procedures in place, we will have to temporarily suspend immigration from some of the most dangerous and volatile regions of the world. that have a history of exporting terrorism. the support networks for radical islam in this country will -- willout and removed be stripped out and removed one by one, viciously if necessary. those in our country that are preaching hate will be asked to -- asked to return home immediately. if they don't, we will return them home. donny: let's talk about the policies. he wants to have extreme vetting. you are at alcide -- you are at
ellis island. you believe in sharia law instead of american law? no. you are in the country. one of the things is we are getting out of the nationbuilding business. one of the reasons he called obama the founder of isis is because he was getting out of the business of nationbuilding. there is a certain contradiction there. hillary clinton does not have the physical stamina. start to putg to the stroke stuff out there? i thought it was a gender thing. none of this matters, just like his economics speech this week. it was meat and potatoes. now he is using temperament. 56-31. he is not fit to be president
and until that changes, he will not do it on policy. mark: saying you are going to have a special test, i agree with you logistically. i think americans would like to see a better system for keeping people out. as for lives around the world, i think that is relatively good politics to say we need to ally with those who share our interests. that is realism. trump is trying to tap into dissatisfaction with how things are going, even though president obama's marks her up. people -- marks are up. people are nervous about it. this is not his current problem. i don't know if he can sustain it. seem to be particularly engaged with this topic. he did not seem to be giving this speech with gusto. it was a little bit dark. americans want to know that we will win with optimism, not live with a lifetime of tough choices
overseas. donny: this was identical. to thes a twin economics. solid, meat and potatoes, but not in his eyes. mark: he should have practiced it more. donny: last week was a rough week for donald trump when it came to how he was pulling in battleground states. hampshire hasnew him down nine points. in georgia, a typically read state, it now looks like a competitive race. 41%. leads 45% to various news organizations are predicting a big electoral college went for clinton and journalists raised the alarm that the republican nominee might need to be replaced and soon. the paper's editorial board said if they cannot get trump to act
by a labor day, they will have to focus on salvaging the senate and house in down ballot races. -- mark, it is clear that national republicans are willing to donald trump under certain circumstances. what you think is the deadline? deadline? donny: i thought they would give -- mark: i thought they would give him until the first debate. debate schedule is up in the air. it is not scheduled to start until late september. i don't think hillary clinton is going to come into that debate on prepared. the chances seem remote compared to people i will talking -- i have been talking to. if he does not turn in sooner, you will see pressure. the rnc says trump is raising all our money.
is it a net dollar for dollar change? no. if his numbers have not improved by labor day, i believe there will be a strong push that they will abandon him the way bob dole was abandoned. donny: no candidate has had numbers like he has and has won the popular vote. it is very bad. i believe something else is going to start to happen if things don't turn around. i can see trump bailing. i can't see us getting to the night,here election trump becomes george mcgovern. it is not in his system. i spoke to a clinton staffer who said that thing they are most afraid of, and there is a date him bailing 15, is out and mitt romney coming in. i see him dropping the mic and saying here is a speech. mark: he is not when to drop out before the first debate.
he thinks he can win it at the first debate. the restcannot see him of his life with a big l on his face. mark: ohio, october 4. you can't turn things around on october 4. you have to turn it around before them. donny: he can do whatever he wants. mark: he is not going to drop out. donny: it is not beyond -- i am a manhattan guy, so i would like to fantasize. "withnow is the time on all due respect" where we cut the malarkey. hillary clinton got help from joe biden today in scranton, pennsylvania. it is the same town where her family has deep roots. there was a bevy of classics to offer throughout the day, including a slightly awkward tarmac hug that kept going and
going. release, joe. 'sere was also some of biden usual folksy banter. >> good to be home with so many friends. as i look around, one of the people in the reception line said my aunt owns your house. [laughter] >> tell her i'm coming. i'm coming home. runningere when i was and up in the bedroom, written biden wall is joe slept here. and then lived here. i'm glad they added that part. mark: there were also a lot of moments of high emotion. iraq,my son were still in and i say to all those who were -- thetheir threat
threat to their life has gone up a couple of clicks. what happened in turkey. turkey accusing us of being part of the crew attempt -- coup attempt. does he have any idea the consequence of his outlandish comments? this guy doesn't care about the middle class. i don't even blame him because he doesn't understand it. he doesn't have a clue. what hillary is about is making sure everyone of you can look your child or grandchild in the eye and say honey, i mean this sincerely, everything is going to be ok. hillary understands that the most damaging thing to a parent is to look at a talented child or a sick child or a child and need and not be able to do anything. mark: a lot of good joe biden
there. great talker. wants clinton elected. what can joe biden do between now and election day besides talking to voters in battleground states? on display you saw is his brand. he is everyone's favorite uncle. he will put his arm around you, have a beer with you. son,he talked about his that he would throw himself before he would let his late son go over there, talking about parenting, saying everything will be ok, he will continue to be the surrogate to let people know things might not be ok with trump as president. he will talk economy, but that is the uncle that says we can't do this. mark: this national security thing is a big deal. knownot everybody is going to he their heart spring --
when --ings taunt tugged will when they talk about beau biden. but september, campaigning, robo events, sheaising has got obama, she has her husband, she has got another big surrogate in joe biden. donny: i picture her with the has these talle guards in front of her. she has president obama, joe biden. who does trump have? in front of him giuliani? mark: mike huckabee. what campaigns are saying about the other side and whether anything is going to stick. ♪
mark: both major presidential campaign say they want the selection to be fought over the issues, but they are both spending a lot of time trying to get the media interested in controversies. the trump campaign has been expressing outrage that some clinton-related stories are not getting more coverage. a report that in under credentialed clinton foundation donator was appointed at the insistence of clinton's state department staff. we are expected to see more e-mails from a long pain -- longtime clinton staff member who was a government employee when it the secretary of state was under scrutiny, along with her ties to the clinton foundation and the fbi's giving
congress notes from the investigation of clinton's e-mail, along with the summary of evidence they uncovered. will these controversies, these slaps, will they get more coverage and should any get more coverage? donny: yes and yes. until you can draw a straight line, not this person got a job or this, to the foundation taking money and because of the money it affected her decision-making as secretary as far as policy, until that line is drawn it all goes into a blur. other than that, it goes into that murky, mushy box. it is more of the same. we know that hillary clinton does not tell the truth, does not tell the truth. we know that. mark: they should all get more scrutiny. the press needs to ask itself whether it is disregarding things because that plays right into what the clintons wanted, spend.
it had -- wanted, spin. -- they will have to prove that there was a conflict of interest, to help a donor. no one has proved that linkage in a way in any of these new controversies. it will be interesting to see information from the e-mails. donny: the "new york times" is reporting an anticorruption investigation in ukraine uncovered a secret record that paid tod $12 million paul manafort. his ties ukraine interest have been previously reported, but it will provide fresh fuel for opponents. last night, hillary clinton's campaign manager put out a statement that read in part --
donald trump has responsibility campaignse all --isers manafort issued his own response. the suggestion that i accepted cash payments is unfounded -- should this get more coverage and will anything stay? stay? mark: it should. lots of people that work at senior campaigns make money, especially overseas. the story is a little soft in that there is no proof. they have seen handwritten ledgers. there is no other evidence that i have read in that story. abouthas made a big deal ties to russia. he has said controversial things about ukraine, the relationship between the three countries. donny: i would say this is an
automatic who cares? they are cooperative. it has been too much putin, trump, russia, readies, we're going to go after terrorists together. yuck feelas got a to it. mark: what trump said about alliances with russia, it is not different from the current administration. his failure to repudiate the bringsspects of putin controversy not just on him, but on paul manafort and anyone around him. the presumption should be there is nothing here until there is more evidence. the times story was interesting but it did not prove he got money. we know he was paid money while he was working that part of the world. when we come back, we'll have trump senior adviser boris epstein onset to talk about trump's speech. ♪
mark: always lots to talk about in trump world. let's get next to -- let's get right to it with our next guest, boris epstein. welcome. boris: base for having me. -- thanks for having me. strong.e is 85 days to go. the candidate is focused on national security, on the economy, on driving a message. sideshow stories out there, but fairly competent in the campaign. mark: people said it is trump's to lose. it is ours to
win. a binarys looking at option. a lot of folks will say trump up there. trump haselieve that nine deadly sins. we don't have to go through all of the e-mails. i'm a firm believer. he gave a solid speech today. unless he somehow walks them back and says i was doing this want toason and i apologize, i think those deadly sins stick with him. i do not believe he can just go forward without taking two steps back. boris: this is my third campaign. unfortunately, the first two were losers. going back and relitigating old issues never works. they are not going to do it. we can disagree. going forward, driving the message home, national security
and the economy. 30% of the people in the country feel the country is going in the wrong direction. that is a huge number. why would those people give four or years to president obama? it is very simple. people think he is dangerous. the numbers tell you that. mark: what does donald trump think vladimir putin? boris: in the speech he made it clear that russia as an entity is a country that can be used against syria. mark: do you think putin is a bad guy or a good guy? boris: you would have to ask donald trump. mark: donald trump said he was going to win new york. in the polls he is down 30. boris: 85 days to go. every state is in play. 85 days out. mark: you like his chances in
new york? boris: i like his chances overall to win the presidency. donny: i think you guys lose credibility by saying, you know what, we made mistakes and new york is not in play. people are not stupid. when they see numbers like 5225. you can't just say that -- 50 to 25. you cannot just say the polls numbers are not right. keep sayingust things are going our direction. they are not. boris: what i'm saying that new york, 85 days out, we're not going to write it off. as far as the national polls go, "the l.a. times" have him within one point. that is very close. these are the dog days of summer. american people will make up their minds in september, october, and very much in november. donald trump will deliver the message that he is much stronger
on the economy. you have to go back to hillary clinton is as a candidate. she is someone who has failed throughout her career in private , and one of the worst secretaries of state this country has ever seen. all over the world we are worse off now. she failed. mark: sit tight, boris. when we come back we will continue the conversation. ♪ [ clock ticking ]

break at some point? guest: as we have lived through this entire process through the partisan republican committee reviews of benghazi through multiple looks at the e-mails state department through the fbi 's press conference we arrive at the same conclusions which is that hillary clinton apologized for using her own server. at the end of the day, what you said is exactly right. there continues to be new information but nothing new in terms of how
she performed as secretary of state and certainly in an election between two people, when you compare what is being said about hillary clinton , compared to what donald said today in his speech, there's a contest on who is prepared to be commander-in-chief and that is why republican senators, former cia directors, leaders in the prettyy have consistently and unless unanimously said that donald
trump is unfit to be president of the united states. mark: are you supporting anyone in this race is to mark >> trump his wife are the worst option. with guy.re- hillary has given the falcons so many opportunities on foreign policy were we could have had a nominee giving a speech today who made a credible critique of her state department record or we could have a nominee who could have criticized her about her lying with regard to the e-mail but we do not. we are stuck with donald trump. outside his speech was completely out of step. with where republican should be on for policy. isaac is the worst nominee of either party since [indiscernible] john: who is most likely to catch a spark with voters? guest: i think the e-mail scandal is bubbly the one that addition toging in
her disastrous tenure as secretary of state overall more than any specific scandal. donald trump is not capable of litigating this case. i know there is great .rustration in the campaign the press does not have a great history of being super friendly to the clintons. why would it be that the media would not be covering clinton controversies and much -- as much as it has? it very.do not have all i want to do is win the election. is you had 44int more e-mails to mount that hillary clinton did not turn over. when she said that all e-mails were turned over, that was perjury. the field office wanted to pursue some sort of indictment. the department of justice --
they clamped that down. these are huge issues. not forget the businessman who gave a billion dollars and then asked for favors. >> trump is not used to being a loser and he is cranky and exhausted and frustrated because he wants to do what he was doing during the primary season. how is the man, how is his head? he is as of this morning winning and is energized and is set on winning this election. the campaign is focused, the campaign is united. -- [indiscernible] >> who is the call he makes?
thinks there is a chance to win new york and connecticut -- connecticut. should he spend a single cent in new york or connecticut? boris: going was a great play. donald trump had a great rally. that really was covered all over the country so that was positive. if they get coverage, there is the money. >> what do you think of the foray into connecticut? >> i would encourage boris to spend a significant amount of money in new york and connecticut. that is a terrific strategy on the part of the tram campaign. it shows they are forward thinking and it is a terrific idea.
that is sarcasm. question? a >> if this is focused on winning what would donald trump focus on winning look like a 50%? that was a rhetorical question. why she out there trying --woo voters western mark voters? boris: americans will have a winery choice.

♪ donnie: we are back with tim miller, the cofounder of the american rising. and in washington here. as we were coming on the air we worked on some reporting i was not able to finish on. familiar says your scaling back in three states in virginia, where you had scaled back and in colorado and pennsylvania. three states.
the public polls show hillary clinton ahead and is it true that your scaling back? it's weird. we are constantly making assessments about how to make sure we're spending our money efficiently and effectively. that is why we expanded our and painted to north carolina. with other states as well. only right now we are reducing our spending in this state mark: your reducing because the lead is being if you do not need to be on the air. >> that is correct. we are assessing where we are weak tickets on a week by week basis. we're not taking anything for granted. when you you and colorado and pennsylvania have been relatively close elections of the course of the last two or three cycles. but right now we're going to look at other opportunities for and potentially to reach out to new voters through voter registration and on the ground efforts in some of our
key states. reduction goes to about september 20. thinking that money or moving it to the states? guest: we will be moving it to other states but also into other activities. one of the things about the work we have been doing is we are not just focusing on persuadable swing voters in the suburb. we think it is critical to use this opportunity to expand our party to increase registration keyturnout among demographics and we will look for opportunities in places like florida and places like ohio to begin doing work on the ground with registration and turnout. it will be some common nation with those things. we cannot expect on making any changes to our current map before labor day.
>> the presidential race -- millionclinton's has 15 in north carolina. they are looking to register voters and bring out voters. we have a competitive senate race. donald trump has not a single cent on tv in north carolina created is article that all the republican group start to their efforts ongoing to states like north carolina and to save like richard or so we can have a check on president hillary clinton. see -- what would you do differently? able right --not not a right candidate -- a right year for this candidate. they had about a third of the vote, less than a third of the road. it is not like if we had one
zinger in the way it would have -- it would have been different. i do think if ted cruz was the nominee and as soon as jeb dropped out i started working for an anti-trump pack. place atnot be in this least to have adds up. that is not the case in right now we need to stave off a landslide. mark: tim says the presidential race is over. do you agree? guest: no. >> the race is over. if you are not on the air in virginia. recs i do not think that is true. we are stay focused in places like ford and ohio, places like hampshire. not only because we have the presidential race there which is going to be determinative of whether we win or -- win or lose.
it is important not only to hillary clinton -- that hillary clinton is inaugurated but she has a senate seat and work with .hat share the same values i do not it is over. we will stay very focused on the rise all the way through the end of the election. imagine ad you scenario if republicans divert money away that you might start spending money on senate races? at all the options out there. i do not think it is something we would rule out but our focus is on making sure hillary clinton not only wins but wins in as many laces and among his many people as possible. that will not only benefit up and but democrats down the ticket. >> she is edging toward the center, there was an article comparing her to mitt romney. are you concerned that any of this could be an way if she
moves to mature to the center? as i would disagree that she is somehow moving since the primaries. she is still out there talking about raising wages, creating jobs, criminal justice reform, voting rights reform, supporting and ant community aggressive diplomatic foreign policy. i think that is a misread that she is talking about tpp. it is a fundamental misread and it is incumbent upon every supporter to reach out to bernie most ofthree supporters which we are currently getting. we are right 85, 90%. want to make sure we extend open arms to every -- every bernie sanders and let them know that the things we care about will be achieved in supporting hillary clinton and that is something we intend to be focused on. mark: we talked about the prospect of shifting resources away. could make that happen what
cap: have to happen is to perfect strong donor less folks focusing on -- focusing. best -- they need to make the call. you can do it and not a big booking your finger in trump saw a start. let's shift to turn resources are there are competitive dates and focus more about that. there is a legitimate concern about republicans particularly suburban republicans not showing up to vote in presidential state have a senate race. >> in what ways if any has he been worse? >> he has the general election
candidate i thought he would be. i think we've put before christmas last year we put out a web video that's the nominating donald trump would mean hillary clinton's inauguration. i predicted in april that he south carolina and utah and missouri, georgia, and arizona. theirs are the tossup states and went guy talks about extending the map and the party -- they will run arizona. partner called me a manhattan fantasize her. he will be seen and election night. fix it would not be surprised to see him quit the campaign. i'm not saying he drops out of the race. morning waking up every where the numbers of the worst. it is tough and guys like jeb
